Carpe Diem

Recently I announced the book “The Interior Sight”, my first book that I co-created in collaboration with my endearing friend and book author Victor Peláez. This is one of the stories in the book that we titled “Carpe Diem”. 

Carpe diem (Quam minimum credula postero) is a Latin phrase taken from a poem by the Italian poet Horacio (65 BC – 8 BC) which translates into English as: “Live the current day without worrying about tomorrow”.

Nowhere, as in a calm sea, can twilight be associated with serenity. The feeling of having lived a day full of ourselves, without necessarily having been happy or sad, the day is over and never, never again will there be another one like it.

If each day, no matter how small, we become aware that we will never live again the same, perhaps our appreciation of the present moment would be greater, more intense, more important for the spirit.

If you like this story and my photography you can acquire either the book or magazine. All the content — including more than 40 images and respective stories —   is presented in two mediums, as a coffee table Book-Art for collectors that enjoy a large format (12×12 in, 30×30 cm) printed on the finest Premium Matte paper for only $225.99 USD plus shipping.
